Preparing for Christmas





If you're in the Los Angeles or Orange County area and you're not already thoroughly involved in bedecking your own parish church with evergreens like these folks, you might like to know that there will be several opportunities in this part of the country to attend the traditional Roman Rite Mass under the papal indult. Courtesy of a notice in the Orange County Una Voce website, some of them are:

Midnight Mass on Friday, Dec. 24th at Serra Chapel, Mission San Juan Capistrano. Christmas Carols begin at 11:30 p.m. We advise you to arrive 1/2 hour to 45 minutes early to assure a seat. Map Driving Directions

8 a.m. Mass on Saturday, Dec. 25th at Serra Chapel, Mission San Juan Capistrano. Again, we advise you to arrive 1/2 hour to 45 minutes early to assure a seat. Map Driving Directions

10 a.m. Mass at Santa Teresita Hospital in Duarte. Driving Directions


According to Una Voce Los Angeles' website there will also be a Christmas Day Mass at the San Fernando Mission Chapel. [MISSION SAN FERNANDO, SAN FERNANDO VALLEY. 15151 SAN FERNANDO MISSION BLVD., MISSION HILLS. 405 FWY. NORTH EXIT SAN FERNANDO BLVD. TURN RIGHT.]
